Occupy Christmas Tree!
My mother-in-law assures me that from outside the house, in the dark, nobody knows what's really going on with our tree.
Actually I think that new Elf on a Shelf idea should really be about an elf who will magically repair all decorations destroyed by exploring 3 year olds - on a nightly basis. After all, aren't magic elves supposed to alleviate work, not make more?
All I know is Lotte is really hoping for a truly decorate-able Christmas next year. The triplets will be 4 by then, here's hoping.
Christmas in the midst of triplets.
